The term "no-code" has been used to describe a type of software development that allows users to create custom applications without writing code. No-code platforms and tools started becoming popular in the 2010s and the popularity of these types of platforms has continued to grow in recent years, driven in part by the increasing demand for digital solutions in a variety of industries and the desire for more efficient and cost-effective ways to create and deploy software.

Over time, it became clear that there was a need for security teams to pay attention to no-code tools. Security teams had to consider whether these types of applications are as secure as their fully coded counterparts. This is because no-code applications often rely on pre-built templates and modules, which may not have the necessary data safeguards or other security measures built in. Additionally, the users of these platforms may not have the technical expertise needed to properly secure the applications they create, leading to potential security risks.

While these may be the implications when it comes to securing no-code, what is possible when it comes to no-code security? No-code applications can help security teams in several ways.

  1. No-code platforms and tools can make it easier for security teams to quickly and efficiently create custom security-related applications, such as security dashboards, incident management systems, and threat intelligence platforms. This can help security teams to better monitor and respond to potential security threats, and to more effectively manage and analyze security data.

  2. No-code platforms can help to democratize the development process by allowing non-technical users to create custom applications. This can help security teams to more easily engage with business units and other stakeholders, and to more effectively communicate and collaborate on security issues.

  3. No-code platforms can also help security teams to more easily automate and streamline various security-related processes, such as incident response and threat hunting. This can help security teams to more quickly and efficiently identify and respond to potential security threats.

No-code applications can be a powerful tool for security teams, but it is important to ensure that the no-code platform chosen is secure, and that the applications created on it are properly secured as well. While “secure no-code security” is quite the mouthful, it’s best when considering no-code security platforms to consider those built by security experts. This can help to mitigate the potential security risks associated with no-code development, and to maximize the benefits that no-code applications can provide.
